These penguins occur in subantarctic waters of the western Pacific and Indian Oceans, as well as around the southern coasts of South America. This watercolour, by British artist William Wade Ellis (1751-1785), is from a collection of sketches of mammals, birds and fish made on Captain James Cook's third voyage of exploration (1776-1780). The artwork is part of the collections held at the Natural History Museum, London, UK.
